This International Women’s Day we celebrated & honored the contributions of women and their allies. In the face of challenges stemming from the pandemic, 66% of women surveyed* agree that their priorities have dramatically changed. Even with these changes and taking on significant responsibilities during, more than half (56%) of women surveyed are still ambitious and 43% believe working virtually has enabled them to be ambitious in parts of their lives outside of work. This International Women’s Day we connected with #TeamAmex women through events focused on having real and open conversations about family, caregiving, mental health and career. Throughout the year we will continue to support our women with mentoring programs, leadership development trainings and tools, and resources and benefits that support holistic wellbeing. These efforts build on our long history of proudly backing women’s ambition. We are proudly continuing to back women’s ambition through #TheAmbitionProject.

  1. Product Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in India
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    I applied online. I interviewed at American Express (India)


    Applied for the Product Manager position (at Amex Gurgaon), then received a call from the talent team. The process started with Interview scheduling and followed for 2 rounds.

    Round 1: Well-structured interview and panel paying great attention to answers.
    Round 2: No interview structure/format, interviewer panel asking vague questions.
    Felt like they were thinking of something while asking something else (not in the zone)

    Post 2 rounds the interview suddenly process went to a halt without any feedback provided. It's been more than a month without any update whatsoever.

    When asked the HRs, the interview scheduler, or all the people I received a call from, no one is cognizant of the result or of the process/ has any idea about it.
    There is no closure. Totally unexpected and unprofessional behavior.

    So please apply at your own risk and don't expect any feedback/update.
    Post the interview rounds are complete the talent team will disappear in thin air as nothing happened.

    Tell me about yourself. Describe your current roles and responsibilities. Where do you see yourself in the future?
